From: firstname.lastname@example.org Newsgroups: alt.revisionism Subject: Re: The first "denier" was a Buchenwald inmate Date: Tue, 25 Jun 96 05:55:50 GMT Organization: York College, CUNY Message-ID: <email@example.com> In Article <firstname.lastname@example.org> email@example.com (John Morris) writes: [snip] >This and the following paragraph attempt to create the impression that >because Rassinier was imprisoned at Buchenwald and Dora he has some >special status as a reliable eyewitness.

But readers should be aware that neither Buchenwald nor Dora >was an extermination camp on the model of Auschwitz or Treblinka. The >horrors described by Rassineier refer exclusively to what Revisionists >would otherwise have us believe is an ordinary labour camp. Just to echo Mr. Morris: French author Aime Bonifas analyzed Rassinier's _The Lie of Ulysses_, and discovered, for example, that of his 370 days in Dora, "341 of them were spent in a sheltered environment: 264 in the infirmary (Revier), thanks to his care packages--he does not hesitate to admit it--and 77 days to the SS Master-Sergeant (pp. 163, 172, 177, 178). 'It was the good life,' he [Rassinier] confesses (p. 177). In fact, he became a confidant of the SS." (Aime Bonifas, "The French Revisionists and the Myth of Holocauste [sic]," in _Remembering for the Future_, vol. 2, p. 2189; page numbers refer to pages in Rassinier's book, French edition.) Thus, Rassinier's experiences were hardly indicative of the typical concentration camp inmate, let alone the typical extermination camp inmate.
